It’s time to elect the New England Randonneurs Board of Directors for 2022! Voting information will be emailed to current NER members using the address they listed when registering via BikeReg. Details will be email the week of Dec 6th 2021.
This is a page of nominated members and their candidate statements.
New England Randonneurs, Inc. is a member based organization, overseen by a Board of Directors which is elected by the membership yearly. Our BOD is critical to the success of the organization. If you have enjoyed the NER rides in the past and would like to further the organization, please consider running for the board. We generally have 3-4 hour-long conference calls yearly with periodic email discussions at other times. The board determines NER's priorities, event fees, resolves potential difficulties, etc. Board members must be NER members.
To nominate yourself or someone else, send a short candidate statement to email@example.com. You may also address board and election questions to this address.
Nominations must be received by November 30th, 2021. The general [electronic] election ballots will e-mailed to current NER members shortly thereafter at the beginning of December.
Tsun Au Yeung, President of New England Randonneurs
NER is going to host a populaire on Dec 11, 2021 starting at Waverly Square in Belmont, MA and ending the ride across the town/city line/Beaver Brook at Mighty Squirrel Brewing Company using RUSA route 1833 Bumblebee 100km. There is a minor change in Sudbury to use more side roads on the return as well as avoiding the dirt road but instead go visit Ponyhenge in Lincoln, MA. The proposed route is here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38077906 and have been pre-rode by Tsun and found no issue, among other things like cider donuts, thankful Gnome, and self service bike repair station at controls or along the route.
You can register for the ride here via BikeReg.
Please note that car parking is only available at the finish, not at the start. Please do not park at the Star Market Parking lot for the duration of the ride as they have a 4 hours customer parking limit (that is meant for not allowing commuter parking).
Since the brewery has a very comprehensive parking guidance page, you can go here to find out (or better yet leave your car at home and enjoy parking your bike next to you in one of the outdoor patio with heat lamps).
There will be a NER Annual Member Meeting that will happen right after the ride at 3PM if you wish to join either in person or virtually via zoom (sans the availability of Cloud Candy or the like). Invitation email will be send if you have pay your dues for NER 2021 membership.
